Children's Books about Sharing Bookjoy

Last year a list of books about sharing bookjoy was included in Pat's Día planning booklet. Here are additional titles that are exemplary of bookjoy. Most were published this past year and are picture books, both fiction and nonfiction; one title (Year of the Book) is a chapter book for young readers. Do you have suggestions for other titles? Leave them in the comments or email lcashin (at) patmora (dot) com. Share bookjoy all year long!
